Projectile penetration and perforation of high performance concrete: Experimental results and macroscopic modelling
2006 (English)In: International Journal of Impact Engineering, ISSN 0734-743X, Vol. 32, no 7, 1068-1085 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Experiments and simulations of penetration and perforation of high performance concrete targets by steel projectiles have been carried out. A Doppler radar monitored the projectile pre-impact velocity history and a high-speed camera captured the projectile residual velocity. A continuum mechanical approach and the finite-element method were used for the simulations. The targets were modelled with the K&C concrete model. For perforation the computational results show acceptable agreement with the experimental results, but not for penetration. The article is concluded with suggestions on how to better model concrete material for the current application.
